Augmenting Navigation for Collaborative Tagging with Emergent Semantics
, , and .
4273, page 58--71. (2006)

We propose an approach that unifies browsing by tags and visual features for intuitive exploration of image databases. Incontrast to traditional image retrieval approaches, we utilise tags provided by users on collaborative tagging sites, complementedby simple image analysis and classification. This allows us to find new relations between data elements. We introduce theconcept of a navigation map, that describes links between users, tags, and data elements for the example of the collaborativetagging site Flickr. We show that introducing similarity search based on image features yields additional links on this map.These theoretical considerations are supported by examples provided by our system, using data and tags from real Flickr users.
